That’s my four-year-old’s homework. She drew the Three Little Pigs inside their house, only it really looks like a drawing of the Little Men instead of the famous pigs.
They were supposed to draw their own characters of their own version of the story. There was also direction that we (the parents) could also write down what our child says about their picture, or help them write it down and they would be happy to read it (or so they say).
I love my daughter’s school. It’s a small-school village with a population of probably only about 50 students. All the little children look after each other and since little T is the smallest and youngest, everyone looks out for her.
When we take her to school and pick her up, there is always a chorus of “Hi T!” or “Bye T!” depends on her mood, she’d either shyly wave back or hide her face in her dad’s leg.
And her teacher Miss O, is absolutely lovely! And so are the teachers-assistants who have been really patient with her as it took some time for her to feel really settled in school.
But homework? I’m wondering, aren’t they a little bit too young for that?
My little T loves drawing. She’ll do it spontaneously and really well.
But when “forced”, she’ll draw something haphazardly as seen above.
I’m wondering though, isn’t it a bit too early for them to have homework?
What do you think?
